The Estate

Located in the heart of Côte de Beaune, our Estate owns splendid plots of Meursault, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, Beaune and Corton’s hill. The Château, the conservatory, the former winery, the outbuildings, the dovecote, the park and the orchard spread over 10 hectares all together, now focused on biodiversity and sustainable development.

The Riparian forest

We have created a riparian forest as a surprising sensitiv, ecological, greedy and poetic discovery. We replenish the natural environment of the vine by planting mostly edible plants. They improve the mycorrhizal systems which are particularly useful to the resilience of the Clos du Château’s vine, cultivated nearby.

The gourmet garden

The Estate keeps on revegetating and sets about doing a gourmet vegetable garden. This food producing paradise, exuberant and attractive is composed of mediterranean vines, grenadiers, olive trees, almond trees, fig trees…

The Château and its park

Surrounded by a splendid dry stones wall, the Clos du Château is a plot of 8 hectares of Chardonnay vines located in front of the Château. In the park and in the gardens, you discover several cedars including a tercentenary one, the chestnut trees path, orchard and ponds. An entire ecosystem in the center of our agroecological project.

The vines

Château de Meursault is located on the prestigious Meursault appellation, international reference of great white wines. The 65 hectares of the vineyard spread over more than a hundred plots, including 5 Grands Crus, 18 Premiers Crus and a dozen of village and regional appellations Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Volnay, Pommard,…evocative names like Great Burgundian Climats.

The cellars

The splendid cistercian cellars, digged from the 12th to the 19th centuries, spread over 3500m², under the Château and its outbuildings. The biggest cellar can house up to 800 barrels. It’s a unique show in Burgundy.
